1995 Renault Laguna RXE 2.2d from UK and Ireland
A costly car to own, but nice to drive
Spare wheel compartment filling with water. The cause was found after removing the rear bumper - it was an air vent under the rear wing.
Heating matrix blocked. New matrix fitted.
The above were fixed by the dealer for no charge as I had just purchased the car, even though it took them 5 weeks to cure the faults.
Total gear box failure with little or no warning! Cost to replace gear box in the region of £1500 including labor.
Have been advised by a gear box specialist that this is common problem with the Laguna as to the way the gear box is designed.
The car is nice to drive and responds well.
Routine serving expensive, cam belt change was £350!
God help your bank balance when it goes wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

How can someone say that changing the time belt cost 350 pounds??? Are you crazy???
I have a Laguna, and I changed the power steering pump, ignition leads, oil + special treatment, spare plugs, stabiliser on front wheels, thermostat and many many more, and it didn't cost me even 200 pounds.
